Do More with Google

May 29th, 2008

I sure talk about Google a lot.  Honestly, Google does a lot for me.  I am extremely happy with their services.  However, Google does a lot more than just provide great search results.  Here are some other useful things you can put in the search box:

• “What time is it in Chicago” – returns local time in Chicago
• “1Z9999W99999999999” – returns the UPS tracking information for that package. Also try FedEx, and USPS.
• “Delta flight 123” – returns the flight details and status
• “100 dollars in euro” – returns (not very much!) the euros you would receive for $100 USD
• “movies 29649” – returns showtimes in Greenwood, SC
• “expialidostious” – offers a link for you to click the correct spelling: expialidosious. I use Google as a spell checker all the time! 😉

You can mix and match these with the TXT service options from my last tip as well.  Here are many more examples from Google:  http://www.google.com/help/features.html
